First Responders Workers’ Compensation
First Responders are the backbone of our society. The first on the scene, they face countless safety hazards, risks, and emotional distress unlike most other professions.
Along with the potential for injury, they are also at risk for developing diseases due to exposure to certain chemicals while at work as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). From physical injuries to psychological trauma, there are many circumstances in which a First Responder may be entitled to medical treatments or benefits.
When it comes to workers’ compensation, it typically applies to those who are employed by a company, organization, or government agency. This coverage extends to firefighters, police department members and organized rescue squad members.
